Trevanion Auctioneers & Valuers do not ship items containing ivory outside the EU. Trevanion recommends that buyers check with their own government regarding any importation requirements prior to placing a bid. A buyer's inability to import these lots cannot justify a delay in payment or sale cancellation.
The government have proposed legislation to create a UK law to ban the sale of all ivory. Please note this means that this lot is legal to sell now but may not be in the future.
Monogrammed initials are unclear. The first initial appears to be an E, and the last initial is possibly P, but we cannot say for certain. The crest is a hedgehog.
